Sportswear: How It Has Changed Over the Years

Gone are the days when sportswear was primarily associated with convenience. Today, our sporting heroes are as glamorous as our screen idols- and that’s true in a case of both on and off-field/court endeavors. Needless to say, much of the glamour that we associate our athletes with has a lot to do with the clothes that they wear on the field or on the court. Sportswear, through the years, has undergone several changes. Regardless of whether it is cricket, tennis, soccer, rugby or any outdoor sports- jerseys have changed a lot over the years. Both technological advancement (as far as manufacturing these jerseys is concerned) and fashion have actually gone on to play a role in heralding this change. Find out more.

What you need to know about the modern jerseys: Find out how they have changed

Comfort, needless to say, is at the heart of jersey manufacturing today. Thanks to the progress of modern technology, today you have these sweat-absorbent jerseys that are worn on warm and humid days. These jerseys are particularly used in high voltage sports such as cricket and soccer so that for players beating the sticky summers is a breeze while they’re playing.

What more? They offer you heightened mobility on field as well.

Today, a lot of thought goes into determining the color of the jerseys as well. When you’re a part of high voltage sporting activity like soccer, rugby or cricket, the team management will definitely want you to sport very bold and bright colors on field. The bold jersey is just a manifestation of your team’s aggression. It’s like a psychological weapon against your opponents. Not every team in every sport may try out this particular psychological hack but you may come across several coaches who continue to fall back on bold (but fashionable) jerseys to shore up mind games of teams.

Women sportswear demands special mention as far as fashion is concerned. Today, they are not only comfortable but funky, cute and trendy as well.

Finding the right manufacturer and supplier

Please ensure that you are looking for credentialed sportswear manufacturers in your town. Don’t end up settling for the services of manufacturers and suppliers that have not really been able to garner positive reviews in the market for the quality of products offered by them. There definitely are certain factors that help you be sure about the credentials of a company. You can start off by reading the reviews of the manufacturers and suppliers. What are their clients saying? Are they satisfied with the quality of products made available by these manufacturers? Are they looking forward to collaborating with these brands for their needs further in the future? Or, are they completely annoyed with the products delivered by these suppliers? Have they cared to clarify the reasons behind their feelings for these brands?

Do seek personal recommendations as well. Ask your peers if they can recommend a brand or not. Zeroing in on a brand has to do a lot with these considerations.

Stuck With Smelly Soccer Cleats? What You Can Do To Resolve The Issue

Running under heat can lead to sweating of the feet leaving behind moisture and odors in your soccer cleats. The fact that you need to be in soccer socks for comfort increases the chances of being stuck with smelly soccer cleats. It gets even worse when you leave them in your bag instead of airing them. The odors can be quite strong and unbearable, but fortunately it is not impossible to get rid of them.

Just like anything else, it is best to start by taking prevention measures to keep the odors at bay. If you want to eliminate the chances of this smelly problem, you should:

· Clean them after every practice or game and allowing them to air dry; the cleaning should be consistent

· Choose K-leather over synthetic materials because leather is breathable and does not therefore keep the odors trapped in.

· Immediately remove them after the game and place fabric softener sheet in them before placing them in the bag; you can then stuff them with dry newspaper upon reaching home to absorb any moisture and liquid present.

· Air dry them in a shaded dry area outdoors instead of in direct sunlight that can be damaging.

· Ensure the soccer cleats are completely dry after washing or cleaning before wearing them again to your game

· Find appropriate soccer socks; absorbent socks are better and they should be of the right thickness to avoid excessive sweating during play

· Consider getting more than one pair; alternating between games gives the soccer cleats time to air, hence fighting bacteria and keeping odors on the bay

· Ensure your feet are clean and dry every time you wear your soccer cleats and socks; it is also of importance not to reuse socks before washing

If it is too late to prevent the odors and you already have smelly soccer cleats to deal with, you can use the following tips to get rid of the smell.

· Use manufacturer recommendations to wash your soccer cleats; most only need liquid dish soap, water and soft cloth to wash thoroughly

· After washing, rinse properly to get rid of all soap residue and wipe if necessary before then allowing them to completely air-dry

· After drying them, sprinkle baking soda into each of them so it can absorb the odor. The soda should be left for 24 hours or even 72 hours for best results. You can also consider using foot odor removing powder of your choice and then use a hand held vacuum to remove the powder

· Use good quality fabric mist to neutralize odor by killing all bacteria; there are odor products that can absorb moisture, eliminate odors and prevent bacteria so find a good one for your soccer cleats

There are is no reason as to why you should be stuck with smelly soccer cleats. Simple preventative measures can keep the issue out of the way and you can use simple removal measures too when the issue is already existing.

Sheer Heart Attack (1974)

For a generation of fans who grew up listening to ‘Radio Gaga’ and ‘Another One Bites The Dust’, it is easy to forget just how much of a hard rock band they were, particularly on their first three records. Drummer Roger Taylor, reflecting in 2014, claimed that they «were like Led Zeppelin with harmonies», as ‘Sheer Heart Attack» shows. In parts as energetic as The Who, in others musically dexterous as Cream, at other times as seductive as Kiss, ‘Sheer Heart Attack» is a fantastic visage of seventies glam metal.

Much of this visage is down to Brian May’s stellar playing, whether it is the choppy chords on ‘Stone Cold Crazy’, the psychedelic riff heard in ‘Flick Of The Wrist’ or, best of all, the long, blistering solos of album opener ‘Brighton Rock’, May’s playing would never sound as good as this again on a future Queen record. This is made all the more remarkable when you consider how many recording sessions May missed, his absence the fault of a bad case of hepatitis, an illness he contracted while touring North America with Mott The Hoople in 1974, a band he paid tribute to on ‘Now I’m Here’.

In his absence, the other three soldiered on as much as they could with producer Roy Thomas Baker in Trident Studios, Freddie Mercury providing many of the songs which made the album’s final cut. A chameleon writer, Mercury threw himself from genre to genre with gusto, from esoteric pop ‘Killer Queen’ to skiffle influenced ‘Bring back that Leroy Brown’ to anthem closer ‘In The Lap Of The Gods… Revisited’ (so-called, due to the similar title of another track). Best of all, Mercury wrote the plaintive ‘Lily Of The Valley’ a sombre ballad, its mood only equalled by May’s succulent ‘She Makes Me (Stormtrooper In Stilletoes)’ and funereal ‘Dear Friends’, three light respites from the riff driven energy of the other songs.

Drummer Roger Taylor also contributed ‘Tenement Funster’, a fifties rock ode sung by Taylor giving his best Rod Stewart impersonation. A classic tune of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll, it proved to be Taylor’s first truly great song. Taylor also wrote the record’s title track, although fans would have to wait a further three albums before they heard the song, due to its incompleteness in 1974.

Bassist John Deacon, having abstained from previous records, finally recorded one of his own compositions. True, ‘Misfire’ is not en par with the songs of May, Mercury and Taylor, but it proved to have enough musical potential to show that Deacon was far from the band’s Ringo Starr; by their next record, ‘A Night At The Opera’ (1975), Deacon proved himself very much a song-writing equal to the other three.

But as a musician, Deacon truly excels on the record. If May’s guitar playing was the album’s best attribute, Deacon’s thrills were an added incentive. From the jazz frills on ‘In The Lap Of The Gods… Revisited’ to the aggressive power playing on ‘Flick Of the Wrist’, Deacon was a very versatile player, a fit match to Taylor’s sparse playing, together a rhythm section capable of equalling Bruce/Baker, Jones/Bonham or Redding/Mitchell.

Queen would record albums of better songs and more cohesion. But there is something special about ‘Sheer Heart Attack’. Dense and exciting, varied and accessible, the band never sounded as good a unit as they did on this record ever again.

England Fail In Bid For The 2018 World Cup

England have failed in their bid to host the 2018 World Cup, the tournament has been awarded to Russia, who will host the event for the first time. England had become the favourites to win the vote to host the competition.

The results of the vote were announced in Zurich by FIFA President Sepp Blatter. The will come as a great disappointment for many fans who were hoping England would stage the tournament for the first time since 1966, the year they won the trophy.

After the voting by the FIFA executive committee it became apparent that England had only secured two of the possible twenty-two votes, effectively winning only one vote as well as their own, and they were eliminated in the first round of voting. The competing countries of Holland and Belgium, Spain and Portugal and Russia progressed to a second round of voting where Russia secured the majority required to be awarded the tournament.

It was hoped that England would win the vote to host the competition, which can generate billions of pounds for the economy, as well as the prestige of hosting such a great competition. It is estimated that £463 million was spent preparing England’s bid.

Earlier in the day, each nation had made a final presentation, which was fronted by Prime Minister David Cameron, David Beckham and Prince William, for England, a presentation that was described by FIFA president Sepp Blatter as being both excellent and remarkable.

It is feared that England’s bid has been tarnished by recent media reports. A report in the Sunday Times resulted in six FIFA officials being suspended last month following allegations of corruption within footballs World governing body and the BBC’s Panorama programme made further allegations of corruption within FIFA and the voting process, just a few days ago. Earlier this year the chairman of England’s bid Lord Triesman resigned following allegations of collusion between other countries, the allegation was seen to be very damaging to the bid at that time.

The 2022 World Cup was awarded to Qatar, meaning that the next opportunity for England to host a World Cup would be in 2026 or 2030, which will disappoint many football loving fans throughout the country.
